Blue Diamond Growers is the world's largest almond processing and marketing company. Founded in 1910, the 102 year-old cooperative is owned by half of the state's almond growers who produce over 80 percent of the world almond supply. Blue Diamond® led the development of California's almond industry from a minor domestic specialty crop to the world leader in almond production and marketing.

Blue Diamond, the world's leading almond brand, continues to build markets and create new products, new uses, and new opportunities for global consumers. In May, 2013, we will double our capacity by opening the first phase of a new plant in Turlock, California, designed to create more value-added global products using state-of-the art technology. Plans also include expanding our research and development capabilities as global demand continues to increase 10 percent annually.

The company produces almonds in various ways, including roasted almonds (under the "Blue Diamond") and almond milk (under the "Almond Breeze").
